About Me

Helping you reach your full potential

Hello! I’m Dr. Angela Peña

PhD, NCC, LPC
I believe that counseling has the potential to help a person unlock his/her ultimate potential. I utilize a humanistic approach to therapy that seeks to help a person integrate mind and body, in an effort to achieve wholeness. I incorporate modalities such as play therapy expressive arts, and sand tray therapy. However, I believe the power of the therapeutic relationship is quintessential for success with clients. My priority is to help clients feel safe and open in order to explore past and/or current issues. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples.
